    I usually try to go to my gym 2 to 3 times a week. It is called LA Fitness and it's an annoying gym with tons of hipsters that are there to mingle and not work out. The good news is that nowadays the young girls feel they need to work out in outfits that are the equivalent of a beach volleyball uniform.

    Anyway, at this time of year it never fails. Starting in January you get all the people whose membership card has been collecting dust because their New Year's Resolution is to get in shape. It happens every year. You see people you have never seen before and the place becomes overcrowded. I am thinking about skipping the gym until February when this dies down. I'll just eat almonds, egg white wraps, and beautiful soup so I don't gain weight.

    Anyone else have this problem at their gym?

    The clipboard people. :grr: Walking slowly, staring at the machines, in their brand new gym shoes and gym clothes. Writing things down.

    They'll all be gone within three weeks. Its the same every year.

    Yes!

    It's already starting to get stupid this past week. When it comes to the dumbell rack, I live on the end of 100lb + weights. Too many times this week I went to re-rack and there were weights below 30lbs in place of mine.

    Yesterday a guy brought a fucking golf driver to the gym and was practice swinging in the mirrors in front of the dumbbell rack. I had to politely tell him to go up to the studio for cycling, yoga, spin to swing that club because he was not at a driving range.

    Middle age women are also finding their way into the free weight area and working out in groups of 2 or 3 and occupy 3 benches with all their shit but only work out on one bench together.

    All in all the next few weeks will be infuriating.

    Yes. On top of the "New Years" crowd, I'm already dealing with the massive wave of seasonal members that show up for the winter ski season (second homes).

    It's my least favorite time of the year. I'll be going in at 5 AM the next few weeks to keep my sanity.

    I am. I'll probably not go for a few months just to avoid all that shit.

    It makes no sense to start a workout regime in the middle of winter. Start when the weather's nice and the days are longer and you can go outside and enjoy the outdoors.

    People are stupid..and sheep..and fat.

    It's already started at my gym. And some of them come in pairs & take over a weight machine so they can both use it. Or, one will be on a machine & the other asshole sits on the one next to it, not USING it, just to talk to the other one. I hope they all die. Motherfuckers. :pissed:

    My gym is always a zoo so it won't matter
    I will say 2016 is the year I get back into great shape like when I was 44. I'm on a diet Momday, gonna start swimming 3 days a week and lifting four days a week
    I want to be strong and confident in my body again. It just takes effort

    Good luck to you.

    That sounds good actually. I should get in shape too but then again I say that every year.

    I don't know how anyone goes to the gym between 6-9 pm, every bench and dumbell is taken and you have to ask every person if they are using machines. I just workout at home since I generally despise human interaction.
